Hi @edcaballer

 

Please try to check if you have other cable. 

 

By the way the best option for you is to contact GoPro Customer Support. 

 

Contact them via phone or chat: https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

They can assist. 

 

Best Regards,

-Jay

Re: My session 5 autostarts alone

Yeah, i will contact them on monday! Why another cable? It goes on unplugged and plugged, i think is the wiffi or bluetooth fault... Let's see what they told me, thank you!
